Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of January 14, 2019.
The Weekly Top 3 is a regular segment on The Michael Dukes Show. I join Michael on the Show each Tuesday from, now 6:20-7am for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am.
This week Michael and I start the segment with a brief discussion of the accreditation issues at UAA’s College of Education (at 2:02) before turning to the Top 3.
Once we do, the Top 3 are these: (1) our look out at the Alaska budget over the next 10 years, why we are coming to believe taxes are inevitable and why we favor flat taxes once we start down that road (5:35); (2) Journal of Commerce editor Andrew Jensen zeroes in on the broader consequences of HB 331 in a recent editorial and they aren’t good (29:36); and (3) in her preview of the session, SFIN Co-Chair Natasha Von Imhof tells Alaskans how the Alaska Senate Majority envisions using ALASKANS’ PFD’s as sort of a forced “Pick, Click & Give” (40:54).
